Ol’ Blue Eyes meets Big Blue at a performance by the Reno Jazz Orchestra Saturday, Sept. 5.
The orchestra, featuring singer-songwriter Bobby Caldwell, will perform “Perfectly Frank” at Sand Harbor State Park that night. The performance will include plenty of Frank Sinatra classics.
“Take a trip down memory lane with the Reno Jazz Orchestra and enjoy Sinatra’s most famous tunes performed by some of the finest jazz musicians in the West,” according to a description from show organizers. “Presented in true Sinatra style by acclaimed soul, pop and rhythm and blues stylist and singer-songwriter, Bobby Caldwell, this swinging night of big band music and songs under the stars is sure to delight. If Frank Sinatra were alive today to celebrate his 100th birthday this year, he would be proud to play Sand Harbor.”
The 17-piece Reno Jazz Orchestra inherits the spirit and excitement of the big band sound that has filled the showrooms and headliner stages of Reno and Lake Tahoe for generations, according to the group’s website.
“The music is alive, and it brings to life that big sweet sound which powers the tap and the jive, and the spell of jazz,” according to the site. “Seventeen instruments, seventeen living expressions. Such smooth stimulation – all singing the sounds that make you want to spin and swing.”
